So yesterday was... um.... special.
There was some standard stuff. And a delightful lunch with the lovely lady who took care of our pets while we were galavanting off to Atlanta.
And then there was the effort to fetch the curtains that mean my bedroom no longer has stark walls with bare windows. (I tried to keep the ones we had, but ... oh my gracious but they looked nasty next to the new colors). We pulled into Lowes, picked up the curtains that we'd ordered before the road trip, and headed back out to the car. Started the car, pulled out of our space, and then.... engine sounds stopped, and the car slowed instead speeding up when I pushed on the gas.
I tried to start it... it laughed at me, and didn't start.
I learned that Volkswagen is good to it's owners. I called my buddy at the dealer, he gave me the Roadside Assistance number. I called them. They asked me if I was in a safe place... once I said yes, they asked my phone number, and from that found my account, knew that my car was under warranty. They found me a wrecker, found the one that would come fastest. The wrecker arrived, and took me to the dealership where they gave me a loaner. Done. I lost an hour, and spent not one dime. I went home to enjoy my evening while they deal with the car problems.
As is the way of things, I enjoyed knit night, solved a few lace problems for my friends, made some progress on a gauntlet design, laughed a little, chatted a bunch and then...took a long hard look at the Wings of Bambu.
It went from this
I would certainly have run out of yarn with the extra width I'd added. But, it turns out that I didn't quite need all that width. So... I've frogged it back, and will focus on making it long enough to keep me sane.
Of course, it wasn't until I uploaded the pictures that I noticed the error ... it's another ten rows back.
Did you see it? If you saw it, I'll just have to frog a bit more. But if you didn't.... maybe I can ignore it and knit forward for a while.
